Happy December Everyone!
Another year has gone by and we are so thankful to each and every one of our amazing members. their families, and all our extraordinary volunteers. You all are doing amazing things to build strong communities and make a positive difference in the lives of others.
An additional #lionsheartstrong thank you to everyone who supported our Giving Tuesday fundraiser. We raised over $1,400 to support teen volunteering and leadership programs. Way to go! Special shout out as well to the Anaheim Hills, CA Nekter Juice Bar for participating in this great day of giving back in support of teens.
